Our three core pillars

Octopus Australia’s strategy is centered around three core pillars: Energy Infrastructure, Energy Markets and Technology and Change.

Energy Infrastructure:
Closer to the assets

We have a team of over 50 energy experts. Our integrated Investment, Development, Engineering and Operations teams allow us to be closer to our assets and manage projects across their entire lifecycle, from development through to construction and operation.

Driven by data and market analytics

We take a data and technology driven approach to constructing and managing our portfolio of wind, solar and storage assets to de-risk and enhance returns for our investors. These specialist insights ensure the assets within our portfolio work together seamlessly and enable us to develop innovative products that look like the future of energy in Australia.

Stakeholder focus

Our culture is driven by our commitment to deliver positive outcomes for our stakeholders including investors, communities and the environment. Integral to this commitment is our collaboration with governments to accelerate Australia’s transition to a clean energy future and ensure long term benefits for our country.
